01. Housing Finance: A Study on Public And Private Housing Finance Institutions In Bangladesh (Download)
Bangladesh has embarked on a gradual transition from a system of directed credit in a highly segmented market toward an integrated market-driven housing finance system. This transition has included an increased role of private and public sector banks in the immediate term and a functioning secondary mortgage market in the long term. To nurture home mortgage markets, this ambitious agenda would require a stable macro economy, low inflation, and careful fiscal policies. An active system of housing finance provides real economic benefits and positively affects savings, investment, and household wealth. Housing finance enables households to accumulate assets that can provide the collateral for their investment needs, thus stimulating small business. Housing finance development boosts equitable economic growth and reduces poverty by improving living conditions, empowering the middle and lower-income population, and strengthening communities. The present housing finance system in Bangladesh is extremely small and highly segmented. Government subsidized housing finance through the Bangladesh Bank through few MFIs in rural area. House Building Finance Corporation (BHBFC) is most common, while the nationalized commercial banks (NCBs) are decreasing their housing loan portfolios. The private sector specialized banks (particularly DBH & NHFIL), PCBs and FCBS with few MFIs are playing vital role for the growth of housing sector. This paper provides the contribution of financial institutions’ towards public and private sector housing and economic development in Bangladesh.

“To me there are two types of people, those who have questions regarding life and those who don’t. Those who have questions eventually work out their place in the universe and their responsibilities. Those who don’t simply follow the crowd and live a life of ignorance. I find Al Safayat to be in the first category. He has plenty of questions regarding life. I wish him well on his journey to finding out the truth about this life and enlightenment”.
Prof. Yousuf Mahbubul Islam, PhD
Vice Chancellor, DIU
“In my years of academic career, I have nourished a significant number of students with values and professionalism. Mr. Safayat is one of those students with high potentiality who has managed to develop himself in a surprising level in last few years. I am sure, if he can maintain his present growth this way in coming future, he can achieve his goal in life. However, he still has so many aspects to learn to balance his knowledge with reality which I believe, he surely can achieve . My blessing is always with him. May he bring pride to his family and the nation”.
